Bunner Sisters


Published July 16, 2009


LibriVox recording of Bunner Sisters, by Edith Wharton. Read by Margaret Espaillat.

“Bunner Sisters,” like “The Age of Innocence” is set in 1870s New York, however the lives of Ann Eliza and Evelina Bunner reflect impoverished New York. The sisters run a "very small shop, in a shabby basement, in a sidestreet already doomed to decline." Shabby as it is, the sisters are happy in their small orderly community of supportive women. The story tells of the destruction of this life, and how the once content sisters are thrown into the realistic world outside of their little shop. (Summary by Margaret)

Subject: Margaret Espaillat is one of favorite readers
A fine insightful, profound, yet at times hurmorous short novel by the great writer Edith Wharton. However she was wrong about top down social reform. Most successful reform comes from the bottom up. from the grass roots majority.

Subject: I was getting bored with this book...
I wasn't paying that close attention...but then it took a shocking turn...and I listened to the entire short book all over again, this time very carefully. Superbly read. Sad story.
